Style Tips for Spring Dresses

One of our favorite pieces for spring over here at Love Harper is a chic, casual dress. Picking out a dress from your wardrobe is fairly effortless, so it’s always a great option for springtime when you are looking for something easy-breezy and flattering to toss on. Whether you need to create a more polished and professional look by dressing your outfit up with heels, or you're going for a more casual outfit with strappy sandals and a denim jacket, dresses really work for any occasion. Let’s check out some of the ways you can accessorize and rock our favorite spring dresses all season long.

Add a Pop of Color

Adding a pop of color to your ensemble is easy when you can choose a dress in a bright hue - like the Sunflower dress pictured above. Now that the weather is getting warmer, don’t be afraid to buy dresses in vivid, cheerful colors. Whether you prefer an eye-opening yellow or bright blue, choosing a dress with a pop of color is a surefire way to make a crowd notice you!

If you do choose a bolder hue, try balancing it out with more subdued accessories and outerwear. A brightly colored dress looks best with a soft-toned jacket and shoes. Don’t feel like you need to match the color – one loud print is enough for an outfit!

Mix Soft Tones

We absolutely love the soft tone trend this spring (go read our previous blog post on the topic if you haven’t done so already!) A fairly simple yet effective way to incorporate this trend into your ensemble is with your spring dresses. 

Try choosing a baby blue or ivory dress, and to really make a statement, pair it with a soft pink or beige cross-body purse. We absolutely love our Mini handbag with a style like our Dallas dress (shown above). Without being too loud, the muted colors complement each other beautifully. 

Always Accessorize

Even if you’re in a rush, pairing your spring dress with a bold necklace or delicate earrings takes minimum effort – and can really tie an outfit together! 

Before choosing accessories to pair with your spring dress, consider the cut and details. A low cut or V-neck often looks great with more dainty earrings and a statement necklace. A high neckline normally compliments a layered necklace well. Don’t be afraid to try a few options out to see what works best with your dress.

Dress It Up Or Down

Whether you are heading out to a job interview, or out to brunch with the squad, dresses really can work for any occasion. Dress them up with a pair of basic heels and a blazer for a more professional look. Or, pair them with strappy gladiator sandals and your favorite pair of sunglasses to hit the town. One of the main reasons we love casual dresses for spring is that they are just so versatile!
